In the history of film, Jack Nance is the only mainstream Hollywood actor to appear in an underground fetish video. Some TV actors (Dana Plato, Jaimee Foxworth) have done porn, and a few porn stars (Traci Lords, Ginger Lynn) and fetish performers (Greta Carlson, Desi d'Angelo, aka Jasae) have done regular B-movie acting roles -- but Nance is unique.
Nance starred in David Lynch's first film "Eraserhead" (1976) and did bit parts in many of his later films plus a supporting role in the "Twin Peaks" series (1990-1991). Around 1990, using an alias, he did one vignette in a multi-part bondage and spanking fetish video (title and origin unknown). Nance had a strange life plagued by alcoholism and money problems and most likely did this to make a quick buck.

Old Fashioned Spankings, 1991
The woman in the video is Kelly Van Dyke, daughter of Jerry Van Dyke, who was Nance's wife at the time. She appeared in several porn films as Nancee Kelly before her suicide in 1991. An episode of the syndicated tabloid show A Current Affair was devoted to her death, featuring a distraught Nance.
